I am looking for an application windows or Google chrome app where i can set my own sentences that will say louder

Something like a text to speech , but need to schedule it the time when it should be said.

Anyone came across an app like this?

If is windows application then:
- you can use task scheduler from windows to say it at the desired time. For instance in Windows XP you can find it here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308569 , or you may replace iz with any other free application from web, just google it "free task scheduler"
- then you can use text to speech free software and assign in task scheduler the task to wake up, start, run your free text to speech software.
The idea is to split the job in two parts because maybe is difficult to find a text to speech which have also a task scheduler inside.

Some text to speech software:
